      I rarely play anything costing less than $5.  The overall odds are too long.  The top prize needs to be at least $100,000 too.  If I'm not going to win, I might as well not win $500,000 instead of not winning $50,000 :)

      There is a $20 game in Texas called the $2,000,000 Spectacular I usually play once a month.

      As of July 9th there were 25 of 134 2nd tier $20,000 prizes left and 28 of 268 3rd tier $2,000 prizes left.

      But 2 of the 3 $2,000,000 lump sum prizes are still out.  Have over 80% of the tickets been sold with 66% of the big prizes still out there?  If so, the odds of winning $2 million are better than 1 in 800,000.

      Somehow, I have a feeling that someone lost a winning ticket.

       

      It went to a certain auditor who suppressed uncomfortable information in his report.  Unfortunately, he's scared to cash it in now that the cameras are all pointed his way.

        No.  Mad Not yet.  I've done some research via GAlottery website and I know what the odds will be.  Jumbo Jumbo Bucks ($10) would have odds at 1:2.5.  Top Prize $500,000.  Giant Jumbo Bucks ($5) would have odds 1:3.1 with top prize of $150,000. Junior Jumbo Bucks ($1) would have odds 1:4.6 with top prize of $10,000.  Since the TN lottery issues 3 new tickets each month, I would say they would have them all come out the same month.  I can hear it now.  "HAVE A JUMBO MONTH WITH NEW JUMBO BUCKS."  I don't know how long it took GA to get the other J-Bucks.  J-Bucks is very popular here in TN and GA.  TN says their $10 tickets sell like hot cakes...  If they add Jumbo Bucks to the name they would really sell wouldn't they?

        Not exactly right on the ticket info... all that info will change by state since each one has different requirements according to state laws.  So, the game will probably have different odds and prizes... but it will most likely be close.

              Didn't see any place where this news was reported.  Missouri is introducing a $ 10 scratcher where the payoff exceeds 75 percent of the ticket sales. The chances of having a winning ticket is also roughly 1 in 3.

                  The most I've won off those is $20.  I really like those tickets.  I wish I was back in TN to play them.  I also miss jumbo bucks and I want to try Junior Jumbo Bucks.  (BTW they updated the Jumbo Bucks there are 34 $50,000 prizes now and 15 $10,000 junior jumbo bucks prizes now)  Good luck guys.

                  How are you going to win if you don't play?

                      Congrats.  I'm sure this ticket will be as big as Jumbo Bucks ($2).  I also expect a $5 Giant Jumbo Bucks to be introduced soon also.  AND $10 Jumbo Jumbo Bucks.  Odds are going to be good on the higher tickets.  I think Giant is 1 in 3.1 and Jumbo Jumbo is 1 in 2.5!!!!!!  Great odds and I love these tickets.  If you want to see what they will look like go to Galottery.com and select instant tickets and then click on the tickets.  They will look exactly like those in GA.  Also ask the TN lottery to add them. (email them)  I think we got junior because I requested it a lot. 

                      How are you going to win if you don't play?

                        I play whatever game has the best odds. I've noticed that the best odds for scratchers in North America is in Ontario. They have a ton of games (even $2 games) with odds below 1 in 3. The worst I've found is in New Jersey, which has been known to create games that exceed 1 in 6.

                            Can you, without placing yourself in any jeopardy, physical or otherwise, tell us how you know this?

                            I ask because I have seven (7) $2,000,000 Spectacular tickets, unscratched, in a bank safe deposit box in Austin.  They were purchased between February and June 2004.

                              When I play, which isn't very often, I usually buy the $1 and $2 dollar tickets. But every now and then, I will buy a bigger ticket.
